Will a chick hatch quicker if it pips on day 21 and not before then?

    I have one pipped shell in my incubator of 5 eggs and another one wiggling, I used to have eight but three werent fertilized. I can't believe it's happening because this is the first time I have hatched chicks on my own! the excitement is killing me! Since it's day 21 and the chick didn't pip before then will it hatch quicker?

    I don't know if its possible for me to upload pics with the device I have but I will be sure to give updates and I will sit on my hands, I know this chick is Strong enough to get out no problem though, I just gotta wait until it's absorbed all it's yolk and is ready to zip and not interfere.
